    Thinking of buying a Eberspacher D4E Hydronic system.

    I wanted the Truma Combi 6D running on diesel but just couldn’t get my hands on one at a decent price , another grand dearer than the gas version :(

    Thinking of buying a Eberspacher D4E Hydronic system.

    I have the Truma, only problem I had was the wiring instructions! Something like ‘if 12v cable length less than 3m use 2mm cable’.... must be joking, needs 4mm. Fitted it in a heatwave so couldn’t test the heating, never worked on a three week trip round North Coast 500. Bit chilly... ! Worth...

    Thinking of buying a Eberspacher D4E Hydronic system.

    Just reading through this and the original poster mentions the Hydronic system which is a diesel fired water heating system usually used with a calorifier for water storage heating and an air matrix similar to a cars interior heater matrix for blown air heating. Further posts mention just blown...

    DVLA Motor Caravan refusal?

    That’s a good letter, think mine was twice as long with far more (probably unnecessary) detail with 24 pictures all with text comments describing what each picture contained, still failed without stickers ! I really think it’s who looks at it at the DVLA, some are picky and some just rubber...

    Gold L4 H3 electric bed build

    Yep Solway, rear door panels are great, you’d probably get 15-20mm of closed cell rubber foam insulation behind the panel where the windows would be. Obviously they are made to fit the H2 and I have H3 so I made some carpeted panels to slip behind and extend above

    Gold L4 H3 electric bed build

    Yes very pleased , I had a hand from David Black (Wissel) who did the bulk of the furniture board , bathroom, gas connections etc. The best thing about a self build I’ve found is the way you can change things or add things as you go on, already added another cupboard by the back doors between...

    Gold L4 H3 electric bed build

    Eventually got the logbook back as Motor Caravan , first attempt failed as it didn’t ‘look like a motor caravan from outside’ ... few graphics and logbook now changed. Build has been interesting to say the least.. I put windows in and awning on within a few days of the van being delivered...

    DVLA Motor Caravan refusal?

    Finally received my V5 back as Motor Caravan this morning (7th September) , some may recall this is my second attempt - last time the van didn’t have the stickers ... happy at last.

    DVLA Motor Caravan refusal?

    Looked like one before , just no stickers ! Had 24 pictures pointing out loo hatch, awning, tank fill, tank drains, hook up, truma vent etc.. but doesn’t look like a motorcaravan from outside’. Couldn’t make it up really, it’s bloody gold with big opening windows, doesn’t look like a damn window...

    DVLA Motor Caravan refusal?

    Mine was refused mid August ‘doesn’t look like a motorcaravan from the outside’ , it’s a new build van, polyvision windows, loo hatch, full awning etc, just didn’t have any stickers ... got stickers now... been 10 days since my second application, fingers crossed!

    Fitting a reverse camera on a 2017 Peugeot Boxer

    It’s a thicker cable than others, mainly white with green trace from memory.. if that looks right it probably is but check with your multimeter

    Dvla again......

    Probably best ringing the DVLA and voicing concerns about it - record the conversation on your phone .

    Suspension spacers

    Unsure how high you want it to be, just rectify the height it should be or go higher. Be aware that if you do make it higher than a standard vans ride height then the castor and camber angles may need to be adjusted which may well not be an easy job.

    Dvla again......

    I’m on a few bike forums and this seems to be the case but not necessarily the same all the time (typical DVLA!) BUT those that have lost their bike entitlement have never done a bike theory test, some get away with it fine, but all those questioned that have lost it have never done the theory...

    Dvla again......

    Bike licence going missing is a common one , seems if you took your bike licence before the theory tests came into force it’s removed at renewal... nightmare given the cost and mither of redoing bike test.
